Pretty sure Son would protest his innocence after going full CantonaCan't beat a good pun, Son. haha OK, I'll stop now. Great game for you after the recent hiccups. You made Spurs kiss the ring today. The thoughts of Beckham instantly come to mind after a player lashes out. I just don't like to see a reaction like that. The kick is fine jk, but the whole what did I do? That puts me off.
It's at home when teams park the bus when Chelsea struggle. Not a bad problem to have though, it's something that has to be learnt and takes time.4-1 comeback. Martial with a brace, Rashford and Greenwood on the board as well. At least the youngsters are doing alright.
Chelsea are more unpredictable than us. At least with Manchester United you know nowadays they are likely to disappoint against guppies and do well against the big teams. With Chelsea it seems to be a shot in the dark no matter who they face LOL.
Unfortunately I didn't watch. I'll catch the highlights on Midlands Today in the morning I guess.Wow. Ederson sent off in the 12 minute. City managed to go 2-0 up and then let it slip. 2 goals in the last 10 minutes giving Wolves 3-2 win. City's players and Pep looking heartbroken.
Halfway and they’ve already lost more than last season and are within one setback of matching the total from the last two seasons.Wow. Ederson sent off in the 12 minute.

Yeah, the game has lost it's way.VAR is a joke
In theory it’s fantastic but in practice it’s shambolic and unnatural. These toe nail / arm pit ‘offsides’ have been called like 3-4 times already this weekend. Judging goals by pixels now. Slippery slope.Yeah, the game has lost it's way.
The offside rule essentially stops goal hanging, which is a good thing. A toe nail maybe being slightly ahead of the last man 3 phases before a goal is scored? That's just ridiculous. Not to mention the time it takes, the entire stadium not knowing what's going on, having to celebrate 3 minutes after a goal is scored whilst it's being checked etc.. It's not working and it never will.
VAR is here to say, but something does need to change regarding offside. I think the rule itself might need to be changed, maybe any part of the attacker being level with the defender being ok would do it. We're seeing goals ruled out for offside when most of the attacker is actually further from goal than the defender! The top of a shoulder or the tip of a boot 3 phases before the goal is scored shouldn't be ruled out, it's just ruining the game.It's been really annoying at times. I lost the urge to celebrate a goal these days when attending at Camp Nou because VAR could check anything out. Klopp said something along those lines himself.
I am even ok with longer examination of potential penalties and red cards because it's tougher to judge those, but offsides... If it's a razor thin margin like in the cases we have seen recently, stick with the original call. I know it doesn't sound right being fine with having irregular goals stand or regular goals ruled out, but the match goes through so many annoying delays/time wasting as it is. This takes it to a whole new level of frustrating...
So, Liverpool with 55 out of 57 points in the first half of the season. Incredible achievement. Identical to what Barcelona did in 2012-13, and coincidentally our only draw was against our biggest rivals too. Unfortunately we slowed down in the second half, missing out on Invincible season after losing at Anoeta and Bernabeu, but still got to the century mark, tying the best points tally in La Liga history.
Liverpool will probably do better than that. What impresses me most is how they have reacted to last season's dramatic race they lost, by improving even further. And I can only imagine the upcoming euphoria at Anfield. 30 years of wait, think about that. Actually doesn't feel that long ago when they won their 18th title with Rush and Barnes in attack, and Kenny Dalglish, being in his last year as the player-manager, subbing himself in on Liverpool's final home game of the 1989-90 season. But it must feel like a lifetime for the supporters.
Never liked them. Personally I have enjoyed Manchester United's dominance in England during the previous couple of decades, but this will be a special moment, and I will be happy for them finally living it. Mostly for Klopp, who has done a fantastic job.
I would have sympathy back when he was getting only £10 donation a week. Now he gets a £100 a minute on subscriptions.
I don’t really mind if VAR stays maybe just tweak it a bit. I wish it didn’t cause such a delay but I guess it’s justified more times than notI would have sympathy back when he was getting only £10 donation a week. Now he gets a £100 a minute on subscriptions.
My response is really a similar line from football manager. It always seems to be me that gets the disallowed VAR. Opponents never (rarely) get it. Good job my team is so good now so it doesn't really matter.
Yeah, that Klopp quote about not even being able to celebrate a goal. :/ Obviously, he is being a bit funny but still. Feels like it is still in development.I don’t really mind if VAR stays maybe just tweak it a bit. I wish it didn’t cause such a delay but I guess it’s justified more times than not
